    I thought the necronomicon was going to be on here for sure, until I saw the ‘confirmed examples’ part in the intro.

    ” The book has since been donated by Fenno’s ancestors to the Boston Anthenaeum.”

    Probably should be ‘descendants’, no?

    Well I just check on the Slippery Rock University Library website and there is not “El Viaje Largo” book or anything with Tere Medina as author. Also, it was suspicious because I live in Puerto Rico where there are both Aguadilla and Mayaguez towns but I never heard anything about any tribe or plateau with those names or even the existence of any kind of leather trade. So, ladies and gentlemen… this article is pure BS.

      Try looking a little harder next time. The proof is right here in a document from Slippery Rock University. So your comment is pure BS. http://issuu.com/www.sru.edu/docs/fall2012-rock-magazine/35

      I accept your gracious apology, Carlos.
